With "Whats dat smell?", dual G4 laptop warrior Kero delivers five glimpses into the schizoid brilliance of his next-generation Detroit sound. Raised on a healthy diet of Motor city techno, Kero manages to incorporate early influences while creating a completely new and boldly innovative oeuvre. His trademark style of scattered percussion freakfests over droning, hovering electro pads, first unleashed on the "CFC Windsor" album on Berlin's Shitkatapult label, finds ample expression in the laidba...

|Various Artists - Intelligent Toys 2 (Sutemos007) - Various Artists|
Intelligent Toys 2 8 months have passed since the release of the first volume of Intelligent Toys. We thought that is impossible to do a better compilation for virtual label at that time. But as the second volume proves it is always possible to do better Â you just have to want and do your best to make it real. At some points it has even overcome our biggest expectations. So there is hardly anything more to say Â 24 names 9 of which have never published their music on virtual labels can tell y...

|Shiftless - White Mountains [BKTR008] - Shiftless|
Backtrack is very pleased to welcome Shiftless, ambient legend in the world of netlabels. "White Mountains," the song he calls "his best work to date," is restful, yet manages to be captivating at the same time so captivating that the emotions of the song are inescapable. At twenty-six minutes long, its also his longest work, and shows a wide range of ability and cohesiveness.

|[dlnet007] - Drone Dimension - You Turn Me EP - Drone Dimension|
From their album, Faintly Acquainted Drone Dimension have the ability to transport you to Dreamland (yes, the place where we put together all these mp3 releases) Just kidding! But their blend of blissed out droning guitars, whispered vocals and percussive blasts are right up there with the best of the shoegazers. Unfortunately the band called it quits not long after this ep was released.

|[dlnet010] - Henry Flower - Non Resurgam - Henry Flower|
Henry Flower, also known as Henry Clarke creates his pieces by improvising guitar lines through various effects boxes, then processing them with sine waves and found sounds. The results are very moving. Mixed just right, duelling, plucked guitars battle it out to be heard in between shifting frequencies of hypnotic bass pulses. Very calming material. Watch for much more from this new artist.
